  • 1 cup Yellow Mustard Seeds
  • 0.25 teaspoon Turmeric Powder


  • Toast your yellow mustard seeds for 20 seconds in a dry skillet.
  • Cool the seeds, then transfer to a spice or coffee grinder and pulse until you have a powder.
  • Pass the powder through a sieve to remove the hulls.
  • Blend a pinch or two of turmeric or saffron with the mustard to create the bright yellow associated with the condiment.


  • You can make this without turmeric or saffron, however, the colour will not be as yellow.
  • Whole seeds have little aroma, and have to be ground and activated with water for the flavours to awaken and bloom.
  • Mix with flour to create a Ground Mustard Flour to use as a preservative in pickling and chutney recipes.
  • Added with herbs like tarragon, basil or mint for a cool flavour.
  • Blend with water prior to adding to recipes or even mix with other spices like pepper or chiles.
